Category Description for Saxon Math:

Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed.

The most popular homeschooling math program hands down! Highly recommended by both Mary Pride and Cathy Duffy, Saxon Math also wins our award for the "Most Requested Text." Saxon math is a "user-friendly" math program - even for Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and other usually difficult math topics. Learning is incremental and each new concept is continuously reviewed, so the learning has time to "sink in" instead of being forgotten when the next topic is presented. Higher scores on standardized tests and increased enrollments in upper-level math and science classes have resulted where Saxon has been used in public schools. Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed. Because of the format, children are able to work more independently.

Category Description for Saxon Middle School Programs:

Featuring the same methodology as previous editions plus enhanced mathematical content, Homeschool Kits contain a non-consumable student edition textbook, consumable tests and worksheets for one student, and a solutions manual. All three components of the Homeschool Kit come softbound. The Student Edition Text uses a two-color page layout, as opposed to the black and white pages of prior editions. Tests and Worksheets include a significant amount of fact drill practice, course tests, as well as various forms for recording student progress. Solutions Manual contains solutions to all problems in the text and tests.

We used 5/4 and loved it...we switched from Singapore. I like all the review and lesson integration that Saxon offers.

For 5th grade math.
Christa A on Sep 8, 2019
I chose this program because the online and video math options we had used previously just weren't working for my son; I loved the straight-forward, no frills, approach and layout of the text and that it is set-up the same way each day. He can know what to expect each day with no surprises (which is helpful for a child with anxiety).
Mary S on Sep 7, 2019
It was recommended to me.
christa m on Sep 2, 2019
I chose this for two reasons - Saxon's reputation and this curriculum makes sense for where my daughter and I are both at in her current homeschooling journey.

Shawn R on Aug 13, 2019
Saxon provides such a thorough learning environment for my kids. They may not always love the repetitive nature of some of the problems, but they do learn so much about problem solving. The repetition is fantastic for cementing those skills in their brains, even if they don’t get super excited about it.
Kendra P on Aug 7, 2019

We used 5/4 last year and loved the program. It was my favorite part of the day!
Kristin J on Jun 27, 2019
I like that it has the DIVE CD option to watch at the beginning of each lesson and it was reviewed very well by other homeschoolers.
Bryana M on Jun 25, 2019
Our family has been using the Saxon Math Homeschool program for a few years. It is a great program that introduces new concepts and is also cumulative so that my daughters are able to retain their knowledge of prior concepts learned.
Leslee P on May 15, 2019
We chose this because we used Saxon Math 5/4 and my daughter responded well to it.

I bought this because my daughter is almost finished with 5/4 and 6/5 is the next level. I like Saxon Math because it explains math in a way that makes sense.
Michelle N on Mar 26, 2019
We started with Saxon for 3rd grade and are finishing 5/4 now and love the program for my learner. I am excited to see what's ahead and just ordered 6/5!
Courtney B on Mar 21, 2019
We are happy with the saxon math system. Very systematic.

Using Saxon for older child as well.
Joseph M on Oct 25, 2018
Saxon math is a great fit for many homeschoolers. I also love that I can pair it with the DIVE CDs or stream download so that my oldest can study more independently. So, we are trying this out this year!

Ann Marie J on Jul 23, 2018
We love Saxon Math and are continuing with this series for the coming school year. The lessons are well organized, develop new skills, enforce old knowledge and challenge my children.
Tiffany S on Jul 23, 2018
Looking for a good math program. We have always used Abeka but I switched my older son to Saxon and my younger son liked the look of these books too so we decided to go ahead and switch him as well. I like that there's more explanation for the student in each lesson.

I used saxon 4 intermediate can I go to saxon 6/5?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. Saxon Intermediate Math 4 has roughly the same scope and sequence as Math 5/4 so your student should be well prepared to move into Math 6/5.
What edition is this? We just finished 5/4 Third edition, 2005
A shopper on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is the 3rd edition of Saxon Math 6/5 also published in 2005.
isbn of solution manual for saxon math homeschool 6/5?
A shopper on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The ISBN of the Solution Manual for Saxon Math 65 is: 9781591413264
Does this curriculum meet common core standards?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I hope not. One of the biggest reasons I chose to homeschool was to get rid of common core. I found that Saxon Math does a good job of explaining each lesson. The lessons are easy to follow and the practice questions are applicable.

I used Saxon Math 5/4 for my fourth graders last year. Is Saxon Math 6/5 next or should I use Saxon math 5 intermediate?
User on Aug 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have been using Saxon for a few years now and have gone straight from 5/4 to 6/5. Saxon does have a placement test on their website that is very helpful for determining which text is most appropriate.
I will be teaching triplet boys do I need to get three student workbooks and three consumable tests and worksheet books or could I make copies?
User on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can make copies but in the end it would be super expensive.
The more affordable option would be to buy 1 workbook and have a notebook for each student where they could just answer the questions from the workbook. And buy 1 test booklet and just make copies for the warm-ups and tests.
I hope this helps.
I will be teaching triplet boys do I need to get three student workbooks and three consumable tests and worksheet books or could I make copies?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From the copyright info in the books, it is my understanding that the company would like for you to have one for each student. At that age, I just made each of my girls do the work in a notebook, leaving the books unmarked for the next student. However, my 3 weren't all working in the same book at the same time. If I remember correctly, there are less than 30 tests, which wouldn't be too much to make copies of, but there is at least 1 worksheet for every lesson, which is a lot to copy. Hope this helps!!
I will be teaching triplet boys do I need to get three student workbooks and three test and worksheets workbooks or can I make copy's and pass them out?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I love the Saxton Math homeschool kits. The kit I order comes with the math book, solutions manual, and test book. I have my children write the answers to the questions in each lesson in a graph paper notebook, and with the tests they write answers on a sheet of paper to be filled. This allows me to use one math kit for the family.

Thumbs up
This is my first time using Saxon math and I really like the thoroughness and repetition of this program. The math fact practice sheets are great review for my kids and the teachers manual makes checking work simple. Everything has been explained very well so far!

Rigorous, yet intuitive. I love Saxon!
I have used all levels of Saxon from grade 1. We are now in Algebra 1. I love the way concepts are presented in an intuitive way, where one skill leads into the next. For example, skip counting by 5s leads directly to telling time, and counting nickels & $5 bills. A student already knows the basis for what they are about to learn through concepts previously presented. This is why integration with geometry makes so much sense. Once you know how to multiply 2 numbers, you can calculate the area of a rectangle. I wish I had learned math this way! It is not your traditional math.

There is a lot of review. There are typically 30 review problems per lesson once you pass Math 3. However, concepts are built upon in the review problems. Creativity is required in the review questions to solve problems that are similar, but not exactly the same as concepts previously presented. A piece of information may be missing that you are expected to figure out how to calculate. On high school math team, this is exactly what we were required to do at a tournament. Only students use those skills every day with this curriculum! It is challenging and rigorous.

For this reason, it may not work with all learning styles. If a child needs to repeat the exact same kind of problem over and over to learn all the steps involved, or if they have a hard time learning multiple concepts per lesson, they will have a hard time with this curriculum. Many lessons in Algebra 1/2 present multiple concepts, but they all fit together intuitively. There are typically only 4 to 8 problems practicing these new concepts per lesson. Supplemental practice is available on selected concepts in the back of the book from Levels 54 to 76. No supplemental practice in Algebra 1/2. I don't know about 87.

If there is a downside to this curriculum, it is that it is quite time-consuming. This is has been consistently true through all the levels. Levels 1-3 require a lot of teacher time. 54 to 76 move the time burden to the student. For me, time spent doing this kind of math is fun and well worth it. In my opinion, if you want to train an engineer, this is your choice for math curriculum.

Lots of practice!
We have been using Saxon Math since 2011 consistently. The most important task for any curriculum, I have learned, is to figure out your child's needs. In order to achieve mastery, my one child needs a lot of practice; my other child doesn't need as much. Saxon has A LOT of practice so I've had to tailor it to my one child who doesn't need as much practice. Saxon isn't colorful or "fun" to look at but it has everything a student needs to master math.

Very Good Math Curriculum
I would recommend this to parents who wish to give their students a comprehensive, Common Core free math education. I enjoy how Saxon reviews and builds on simple concepts in order to teach concepts that are more complex. The way Saxon explains the lesson makes it fairly easy to teach.

Saxon is not the program that I thought would be a good fit for my twins now 10 They are both fairly creative learners active and what I had always heard about Saxon Math was that it is "drill and kill" and repetitive--in short it seemed exactly not the way I saw my children learning I have been very pleasantly surprised with just how well Saxon has met our needs and how eager my boys are to do the work For K-middle of 3rd grade we had used a combination of programs: primarily Math-U-See supplemented with Singapore Math and DK workbooks I've never been a single-curriculum user; I tend to use most materials as "resources" more than a single program to meet all of our needs I was very happy with what we did in those early years but what motivated me to try Saxon was wanting to cover more areas of math to better prepare for testing in the middle grades The spiraling approach was appealing to me I'm now using Saxon 1 with my 1st grader and it's a better fit for her than it would have been for her older brothers She enjoys the many drawing activities ("There were 5 turkey sandwiches on the picnic table and 3 peanut butter sandwiches Draw a picture and write a number sentence to tell how many sandwiches were on the table altogether") whereas they would have felt overwhelmed by the amount of pencil work involved My daughter looks forward to the varied activities for each day As the parent I do find that Saxon at those early levels (up to 2 or 3) does require more involvement from me and is simply more time-consuming if you choose to do many of the daily activities like calendar work writing the date charting the temperature My daughter loves this stuff but I'll admit some days it just makes me tired and I long for the simplicity of the other math curricula I've used!What my 5/4 and 6/5 children like about Saxon is that it is straightforward It's no frills (though I think many of the word problems are rather creative and fun!) They wake up each morning and know exactly what they need to do and this routine is comforting They both approach math in different ways One of my twins is much more confident about his math abilities and he has liked Saxon because there is such a variety of problems that he doesn't get bored doing the same concept over and over day after day His brother has seen his confidence grow because things move in this program at a manageable pace And I have been pleased because I feel that Saxon prepares them well for testing It is more tied to standards than some of the other programs we've used and I don't approach testing time wondering if we should have taken some time to at least acquaint ourselves with probability or some other topic that may not have been covered in some of the mastery-based single-topic programsWith all that said I am still supplementing Saxon a bit--throwing in a bit of Math-U-See for some extra practice on some concepts (fractions for example) and I'm also having them use some of the "Key To" series to reinforce some things But overall Saxon has definitely surprised us in that it turned math into a confident no-more-tears situation and into a subject that my boys want to now do first It feels right on for poising us well to be prepared for moving into pre-algebra and after researching other curricula as they have finished their Saxon book I see by looking at placement tests for other programs that they are might even be able to skip some levels of other programs based on how well-prepared they have been from using the middle-grade saxon books

I am currently using Saxon 65 with both my 5th grade level son and 6th grade level daughter Each day we start our math lesson by setting the timer and doing the drill worksheets The children compete with each other to get the best times We then do the warm-up exercises and go over the lesson The children then complete the mixed practice on their own I love how Saxon is both student friendly and teacher friendly I appreciate that skills learned in previous lessons continue to be included in subsequent lessons For years I have been afraid to use Saxon because I have heard remarks from others that Saxon was too repetitive and boring I asked my children if they liked Saxon better than the other math curriculums we have used they emphatically stated that they did I asked how they felt about doing the same drill sheets over and over and was told "It helps us memorize the math facts better!"
